[Solved] Blinking Labels

Postby gkick » Wed Mar 11, 2020 5:48 am

Hi there,

Recent form and report dev I noticed that the controls properties for font in reports offer blinking, but this is not the case for forms, which is a bit odd since how would one see blinking on a hardcopy? Is there another place somewhere in forms to enable a label to blink?

I'm not aware of any way to add animated text to a Label control.
Since a Base form is a Writer document overlaid with controls you could place text in the background document and use that as a label. That text could be animated, at the expense of losing the simplified positioning capabilities of a Label control.
